Jul. 13, 2018 – LAPP, a manufacturer of integrated cable and connection technology solutions, has acquired its long-term Swiss distribution partner Volland. Company founder Rudolf Volland and Managing Director Reto Volland signed the purchase agreement with Andreas Lapp, Chairman of the Board of LAPP Holding, and Matthias Lapp, CEO of LAPP for Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“This step is the result of a successful long-term partnership and compatible corporate philosophies. This will help LAPP to continue increasing our presence in the very innovative and demanding Swiss market and provide an even better and more seamless service for customers in Switzerland and all over the world,” said Andreas.
Volland AG, which is headquartered in Rümlang, Switzerland, has been one of LAPP’s distribution partners since the company was founded in 1960. The Swiss company is a system provider of cable technology, and currently employs 35 staff. Reto, who has been Managing Director of Volland AG for 32 years, will continue to run the new LAPP company.
“Our aim, after just shy of six decades in business, is to make sure that Volland AG has a secure and innovative future. We want to maintain the trust of our customers and all employees, gain additional market shares and transform Volland AG into a LAPP site in Switzerland. We are restructuring early to ensure continuity and new prospects for the future,” said Rudolf.
